An easy recipe you can make for dessert tonight

I don’t know about you, but I love summer. The hot weather, time outside, swimming, fireflies… I love it. One of my favorite things about summer is all the occasions to get together for delicious food. Usually this is unofficially kicked off with Memorial Day. Here is the PERFECT dessert you can make for your next gathering that doesn’t take a lot of time, and without a lot of complicated steps

lemon bars, recipes



  • 1 cup soft butter
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • Dash of salt
  • 2 cups of flour


  • 4 eggs beaten
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 10-20 drops Lemon Vitality essential oil


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  2. Combine all the crust ingredients and mix well
  3. Press into greased 9 x 13 pan
  4. Bake for 15 minutes
  5. Let it cool slightly
  6. For the filling, combine flour and sugar
  7. Mix in beaten eggs and essential oil (I usually do 15 drops)
  8. Pour into slightly cooled crust
  9. Bake for 25 minutes
  10. Let cool and sprinkle with powdered sugar

*Store in fridge to maintain density*

These are totally drool-worthy. Your family will thank me 😉
